Questo studio analizza le determinanti della soddisfazione lavorativa degli operai. La letteratura è concorde sull’importanza della soddisfazione lavorativa per migliorare la vita privata e la salute dei lavoratori e aumentare la produttività, ridurre l’assenteismo e il turnover dell’azienda con effetti positivi sulla performance. Seppure molti studi evidenziano che il welfare aziendale accresce la soddisfazione, questa non è sufficiente. Per garantire un ambiente lavorativo soddisfacente, è fondamentale analizzare le caratteristiche del lavoro e le relazioni che il lavoratore instaura con il supervisore. Utilizzando un campione di 131 lavoratori di 12 fabbriche del Veneto, la presente ricerca conduce un’analisi empirica per studiare (1) la relazione tra complessità del lavoro e soddisfazione lavorativa e (2) la relazione tra stile di leadership adottato dal supervisore e soddisfazione lavorativa. I risultati mostrano che un lavoro complesso che permette al lavoratore di applicare le proprie conoscenze per svolgere un ampio numero di mansioni e un supervisore che adotta uno stile di leadership trasformazionale influenzano positivamente la soddisfazione del lavoratore.
